Daily Show Lampoons Occutards on Wall Street
People of OWS ^ | 11/18/2011 | Wally Spotter

Posted on 11/18/2011 7:13:25 AM PST by peopleofows

Well, the occutards have finally been evicted, leaving untold amounts of filth in their wake.

You know things are bad when even The Daily Show even starts making fun of them.

Check out the video: Portrait of Hypocrisy -- OWS Becomes the Very Thing It Claims to Hate


TOPICS: Government; Humor; Politics
KEYWORDS: dailyshow; obama; occupiers; occupywallstreet; occutard; occutards; ows; stewart; wallstreet
My favorite quote from the video: "Is there a course in condescension that everyone is taking here?"

pretty much nails it

all their bs sounds good (to them)... until they’re seen putting the plans into action.

why aren’t people proposing change expected to model the effects of the change over 10+ generations?

lol! The irony is delicious. The leaders/committees go into the bank building to discuss and make decisions for the masses. lol.

So if they have lost Jon Stewart, have they lost the support of the elite liberal kids who watch that show,and get their news and information from Jon Stewart???

That's what cracked me up, too.

I also like “So let me get this straight...you’ve only been here for 8 weeks...and you already have a ghetto”.

Even the Weather Channel rather objectively reported the Occutard news this morning.

Wow, that was awesome. I think I'm going to have to start setting the DVR to record The Daily Show. Between this and the piece Jon Stewart did on Solyndra a few week's back ("That Custom-Tailored Obama Scandal You Ordered Is Finally Here" (link), that show is worth checking out.

I get nervous when too many media types become all for or all against something. THat’s not a natural thing to happen.

But lets look at OWS for a minute. These people actually in the trenches doing the OWSing are clearly not very bright, on average. There is clearly an element in their crowd that is hard core communism. I’m not ready to label them all as communists though. But there is that element in their crowds. There also seems to be run of the mill anarchists involved. there are also libertarians and average democrats and independents even a few republicans. It appears to me to be a diverse group of people with just two things they all seem to have in common: lower than average skills and lower than average income.

That should be a warning sign to all of us. This is what happens when a nation starts having long lasting economic problems. The people on the bottom who are suffering the most lose their patience and get angry...and when they get angry, reason and logic are no longer valuable commodities. They don’t care anymore. They are just mad as hell and are ready to make everyone aware of it.

I don’t think it is constitutional to break up these protests. But the cops on the streets are not stupid. They know what is coming if these angry people are allowed to congregate long enough in large enough numbers. They will eventually transform from protestors to rioters and looters. I believe this is why the cops are beginning to lose patience with the OWS protesters. The longer the protests go on, the more of a magnet they become for all the angry people to come out of the shadows and join in.

"I don’t think it is constitutional to break up these protests."

People have the right to peacably assemble. They DO NOT have the right to take up residence in a private park. It is absolutely constitutional to throw these idiots out of the park, and to arrest them if they refuse, and to arrest them if they insist on setting up little socialist communes anywhere else, unless it is on property they own themselves.

Free speech does not give one the right to squat on private property (Zucatti Park is privately owned), to vandalize private property, to obstruct roads, bridges, and businesses, to create public health dangers, or to use public services to support them.

Somehow these spoiled brats think that civilization must finance their lives to support their free speech.

A right is something that does not require the service of another. You have free speech, but you don't have the right to take someone else's soapbox.

For the most part they are peaceful. It appears to me the cops are the first to become unpeaceful...and the protesters are reacting to that.

It strikes me as very dishonest to allow protests except when you don’t like the people doing the protesting.

All the way back to October 13th, Brookfield management who owns the park were demanding the removal of tarps, sleeping bags and tents as well as prohibiting sleeping on benches or on the ground and were given what amounts to an eviction notice by the park's owner.

Wow, that was really excellent. I loved when that confused idiot declared that everybody should have access to technology and iPads and she clarified for him…

“Except for yours, right?”
“Right, this is my personal possession. I’m more against private property, not personal property.”

Also, when she asked the hipsters assembled in the Deutsch bank lobby, making all the important decisions for the movement...

“Ummm… does the drum circle know we’re here?”

At that, the latest target of the Occupy thugs is Brookfield because they demanded the removal of the OWS punks from their private property.

The reason you're seeing such a cross-section of America in these rallies is because at the root of the protests is this...

Whoever our candidate is next year needs to put the speech where obama supports OWS on heavy rotation.

Yes.

That is the connection between OWS and tea party folks(on the average). The difference, IMO, is that tea party folks are above average in skills and income abilities and thought processes...OWS is the lower half in those categories. On average.

The lower half is not going to try to solve problems with their brains. They are simply going to get mad and lash out. They will latch on to whatever dogma/ideology lets them get madder. If and when all hell breaks loose, they will be the ones there in front champing at the bit with a stick in one hand and a rock in the other waiting for the “go” signal.

I am not kidding.

I know you’re not kidding and I hope you’re right. I think we’re going to need people like them in order to right this ship. Once they’re finally comforted via the ideas of the smarter half, they’ll pull in the claws.
